The storm that brought rain, sleet and snow to the Northeast and Midwest on Friday will retreat north into Quebec, where heavy snow is forecast. As cold air rushes in behind the storm with blustery conditions, lake-effect snow bands will extend from Michigan to parts of Pennsylvania and New York state. Up to a foot of wet snow may fall where the bands of snow persist. Snow showers will occur over parts of northern New England.

Farther south, dry and chilly conditions are in store from the southern Plains to the southern Atlantic Coast. The cool air will settle south across the Florida Peninsula, although some rain and humid conditions will hang on in South Florida. Showers will linger over parts of South Texas.

Father northwest, a weak storm is forecast to spread snow from the northern Rockies to the northern Plains. Snowfall is expected to be generally light in this swath.

The balance of the West can expect dry weather. Gusty winds are forecast for Washington and Oregon. This batch of wind is expected to reach Northern California on Saturday night and then Southern California on Sunday. The winds can be strong enough to renew the risk of wildfire ignition and rapid spread.

FOCUS: Coastal Storm Next Week

Heavy rain is likely along the East Coast on Monday night and Tuesday as a coastal storm tracks from the Carolinas into New England. Rain may be heavy enough to cause poor-drainage flooding from Washington to New York City to Boston.
